Town digs in to procure solar arrays


KENT — At the regular meeting of the Board of Selectmen on Sept. 6, a motion was passed approving four contracts with DCS Energy to provide four solar arrays at no out-of-pocket cost to the town. It is estimated each of the four solar arrays will save the town $200 to $225 per month.

At the end of five years, the town will take ownership of the arrays. They will be installed at the town garage, transfer station, sewer treatment plant and at Town Hall.

The town will be responsible for digging trenches for installation of each array, which will be done by the town crew.
